Description

The ENCORE (ex-AURORA) is a 2003 model TIARA 3800 Open as produced by S2 YACHTS (aka TIARA) of Holland, Michigan. Her Builder is renowned for their exceptional quality and yacht performance since 1974. The TIARA 3800 Open was manufactured from 2001 through 2008 and proven to be every popular for her intended market. Powered by twin CUMMINGS 480 HP diesels, she'll achieve a top end of some 30 knots and easily cruise in the mid-20 knot range.


The ENCORE is the beneficiary of a major refit in 2020 through 2021 and continued good maintenance to the present day. The cost approximation for this work, as noted in the Listing's details, is some $100,000 that would include the rebuild of the starboard engine and major work for the port engine as well! The AURORA is a superior offering regarding her overall condition and "shows well" in her newer Medium Gray AWLGRIP topsides finish!


The ENCORE is offered for brokerage sale as her Owners' plans have changed for the 2023 Season. Located at her marina facility in Cos Cob, CT & in full commission, she understandably presents herself well and is a pleasure to show to prospective clients.


Curtis Stokes & Associates is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Brewer Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
